If Tim Berne's music is not your cup of tea then just state that and end the review, I think the moronic level of writing that followed was uncalled for it only makes you look like a clueless hack.
I didn't read any criticism in this review at all, just another writer out of his depth. Why was Frank not more honest about his own musical ignorance before he wrote the review ? This kind of poor judgement and understanding is second rate journalism, all too common today.
"Snakeoil" on ECM is an excellent album. There is a lot of through-composed, fully notated material as well as improvisation so yes "someone did write that down", Complex structure and improv,, Berne has been a master of that approach for years.
I hope I get to see this band on a future tour.
